Julia Smith - Journey of Faith part two

Sep 24, 2017, 06:43 AM

Julia Smith is a nurse from Stannington in Sheffield, but she's taken a career break to volunteer on board a hospital ship in Africa with the charity "Mercy Ships".

The "Africa Mercy" is the world's largest charity-run hospital ship. It's moored off the coast of Cameroon. Julia went out there in July and won't return home until June next year.

Julia normally works as a nurse at the Northern General Hospital. She says her employers have been incredibly supportive of her career break.
